Creativity Cookies: Morsels for your Muse and
Welcome to Creativity Cookies, your monthly invitation to take creative action!

The BIG IDEA, brought to you by Creative Sprinkle [somebody who is inspiring me with his or her creative yowza], Walt Disney (you may have heard of him):

Get curious!

 “When you’re curious, Walt said, you find lots of interesting things to do.”

He also said, “we keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Flora Richards-Gustafson describes the first stage of the creative process as ” an individual becomes curious after encountering a problem.”  What a great response! Instead of getting frustrated, get curious!

Bonus: recent research shows that curiosity can also lessen anxiety.

Video Morsel (0:53) Michael Kerr suggests that we ask Big Questions.


Why not play with it? Ask HUMONGARGANTUAN  questions and ask ones. Ask. Ask. Ask. Ask. Ask.

Choose an issue, choose a project, choose a problem.  Set a timer for one minute and ask as many questions as you can. Don’t worry about answers. After the minute, take a breath and ask, “how has this shifted things for me?”
